Default Barry Baker's car

Hi guys,

I'm looking for pictures of barry Baker's car at the reedy race. I heared that he had a fan in order to keep his motor cool. So I wonder how he installed it.
If someone has any pictures can you send E-mail me at :
[email protected]

Thanks

Propably had a really small fan (you can get them at Radio Shack) and hooked up the wires to the reciever where the rx pack would plug in for power. I ran one on my Yokomo SD, it is only really necissary if you are running in real high temp conditions.

Very True, even with all the tiny wiz bang electronics we have today.

I have a feeling on Barrys car the fan will be facing the endbell. The reason I used the fan was more to blow the hot air from the motor away from my ESC. It will cool the motor a hair, but there really isn't much air created by the fan. You could also make an air scoop which would help just as much at high speed. I did both on my SD.
